Obama believes in big government
With our July 4 celebration nearing, it's appropriate to remember these words from the Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."
Would Barack Obama sign the Declaration of Independence with this bold assertion of individual rights? I believe he would not. Our president believes in the power of big government just as England's King George did, not in individual liberty.
When big governments exercise their power, individual liberty dies.
We have a special, but unique, credo, "the pursuit of happiness."
The founders knew that it was foundational to individual liberty. Big governments destroy the individual's pursuit of happiness. The big government of King George micro-managed business from afar, not dissimilar to what our president is doing from Washington.
The Super CEO, always looking over your shoulder, resides in Obama's big, centralized government.
Our founders gave us a country where individual liberty, individual character and individual effort are paramount to a free and prosperous society. The big, centralized government embraced by Barack Obama and the left in America is antithetical to liberty.
As commentator Dennis Prager has said, "the bigger the government, the smaller the citizen." Equality, not liberty, is the left's credo and their overriding desire.
If they are successful, in the words of our president, the United States of America will be forever fundamentally transformed.
